And why bother upgrading when next year all the apps will be intergrated into Adobe. Actually, that's probably a good reason to upgrade -- before Adobe F's things up.
It has been confirmed on the Macromedia forums that this version does indeed have tabs for the Mac.grubesteak said:I, too, have been increasingly upset with Dreamweaver. But hopefully this will bring tabbed windows to DW on the Mac, and I can stop saying, "Dreamweaver is much better on a PC than on a Macintosh." It kills me to say it, but it's true.

Yes, Aldus is officially dead now after two Adobe mergers. PhotoStyler died a long time ago when it was still part of Freehand Studio 7 as xRes.Mudbug said:first off - sorry about the yelling.
WHERE THE @#$%^&*( IS FREEHAND?
In the war of graphics programs, apparently in the buyout Adobe has won with Illustrator, leaving many graphic designers (myself included) sobbing at the loss of Freehand. While they did roughly the same thing, Freehand was a whole lot easier to learn, use, understand, etc.
Freehand is dead. Long live Freehand.
seems like a transition borne either out of 'there isn't much difference between 2004 and 2005' or 'wow, maybe we shouldn't have confused people with our "mx" version idea'2GMario said:while everyone is complaining about freehand not being there, what about the versioning ?
mx, mx 2004, and now 8 ?
I keep hoping, since Flash's interface is based upon Freehand, that Flash Pro 8 contains a print interface equivalent to Freehand's functionality.nagromme said:I'm not panicking about Freehand yet.
Haven't there always been TWO Macromedia bundles (if not more), and one of them (Studio?) ALWAYS lacked Freehand?
Maybe the next Freehand's simply not ready to announce yet, so that other new bundle's not being announced yet either.
You really should use ImageReady for the web tools on photos instead of using Photoshop.asif786 said:i don't really like the new numbering system..kinda weird imho..
anyway, aside from that it looks like a nice update. there's always little tidbits that speed up your day a little - hopefully the new macromedia apps have lots!
i do sometimes wonder though -- am i the only person that still uses fireworks? photoshop has always seemed waay to complex for me (i dont use filters or anything..just simple web design tools - crop, export, etc) and i love fireworks. long may it live!
Yay!mainstreetmark said:Good News! They fixed the nightmarish FTP installation, so it saves in the background. Had they had this feature 2 years ago, I wouldn't have wasted a cumulative month of my life waiting for things to upload.
I've never said that. But then again, I've only ever used DW on Macgrubesteak said:and I can stop saying, "Dreamweaver is much better on a PC than on a Macintosh." It kills me to say it, but it's true.
Guerard is Vice President of Product Management and Marketing at Macromedia.FreeHand continues to be an important and successful product for the company and we will continue to sell, support and maintain it as a standalone product, said Guerard.
FlashPaper allows a Flash presentation to be exported to .pdf format. Unfortunately, they've seen fit to only produce it for Windows.mduser63 said:Everybody complaining about Freehand should calm down. From macworld.com:

I'm planning to upgrade to this new version of Studio (from MX), and I'm actually glad they're including Contribute. I'm not really sure what Flashpaper is for.
